Signage and road markings "played no small part” in the tragic death of a Co Down GAA player who was killed on the A1 dual carriageway, a court heard today.

Newry Crown Court heard how a combination of factors — the two defendants not knowing the road or its topography, the poor signage and overgrown grass verge on what Judge Paul Ramsey QC said was possibly “the busiest road in NI” — led to the tragic death of 27-year-old Karl Heaney on May 23, 2018.
